I bought this bundle about a month and a half ago and it's just too awesome. I knew nothing about guitars like I know now and now I know I made the right choice for my budget. The guitar plays very well, it took some time to get the tuning right but later on found out new strings take time to break in. The tuning knobs on the scratch board are kind of lame but work for my taste. The SP10 amp is very loud and great for playing in your room or garage. It's just friggin' awesome, it's a great deal and it's Fender. Don't hesitate.

First, let me say that this is a good, all-in-one, starter kit for beginners. It's a great setup for anyone that is uncertain whether or not they will continue to play and don't want to lay out a lot of hard-earned money to find out. I purchased one of these kits about a year ago and quickly outgrew it, upgrading pretty much everything the package came with. Could I have spent my money on other gear? Yes. Do I regret purchasing this guitar package? No. The Squier Strat itself is an okay guitar, considering how incredibly inexpensive it is. Quality is a little lacking in some places, but it's certainly playable. The neck pickup is quite muddy on mine. I suspect there's quite a bit of variability in the quality of these. If you can play one first (this is true of any guitar), do so. The action is pretty high and other than slapping a set of strings on it, it's clear that there is no thought really given to setup at the factory. That said, having a tech set it up or doing it yourself , is worth the time and effort. It's actually pretty playable now (excepting the neck pup), after new strings and setup. Don't expect this guitar to have any resale or trade-in value. I plan on keeping mine as a beater. I upgraded to something else later, but still pick this one up on occasion. Notes on the other items: 1) Strap included - pretty worthless actually. Uncomfortable and very cheap. I replaced this almost immediately. 2) Gig bag - Not half bad actually. Padding could be a little more dense, but it's surprisingly nice for a "throw-in" item. I still use it, but I wouldn't put my favorite axe in it and expect it to be adequately protected. 3) Amp - It's also okay as a starter practice amp, if portability is important to you. It sounds okay on clean, but as others have noted, pretty crummy on overdrive. I upgraded the amp shortly after buying this package also. 4) Chromatic tuner - Others have had problems with theirs, but mine has worked fine thus far. It's a cheapo tuner, but does what it's supposed to. I use it with my other guitars still, but I have 2 others I use more frequently. This one fits in my case, which is nice. 5) Fender Electric Guitar DVD: This is actually a nice throw-in item too, although very cursory in it's coverage. There are full length versions available separately as well. I think the video is more of a plug for Fender, but that's okay with me. In a nutshell, this is a great way to start playing electric guitar, the package includes everything you need to get started (even a few picks). With a little work, the guitar can be made better, but certainly has it's limitations. If you're in doubt about whether you'll continue playing, but want to give it a try, this isn't a bad way to begin. However, if you do continue to play seriously, you'll find yourself upgrading/replacing pretty much everything. In my case, I replace everything within 3 months, but as they say... Your mileage may vary.

Not For Metal

By Cody Fialkowski

from Boise, ID

This guitar is great! I've had it since December 2010, but I am just now getting around to reviewing it. I originally wanted it because I thought it looked cool. It does. I also wanted to play metal, like Metallica and Slipknot. Single-coils aren't good for that at all, I've learned. However, it has a great airy tone using the bridge pickup. And these things are built to last. I've had no signs of wear with this. The amp is great too, but I suggest getting a distortion pedal if you want to really distort your playing. Also, the strap that comes with it isn't fun too have on you shoulder, so get a new one of those. But other than that, everything is in working order. The neck profile is perfect, the tremolo is nice, and the fretboard has a perfect profile. Great for classic rock or blues, though. Even for the Red Hot Chili Peppers!

Only For Beginners

By Daniel Butler

from Florence,Alabama

If your a beginner I would get this guitar pack but if you've been playing for a year or so I would try to find another deal.Every time I play it the the input on the guitar gets loose and you have to tighten it.The amp is okay but your only options on it are volume,clean or distorted,treble,and bass.It's good for practicing but not for show or gigs.So if you are in a band that performs a lot do not buy this but if you are a beginner I would recommend this guitar.

Eh

By jacob costa

from Knoxville tn

Good for beginners, but once you start playing more rapidly, you'll need a new guitar. And, after owning it for over a year, I have realized that the body of it is HUGE. Way too big to play in a band with. So, good starter guitar, but just plan on buying a new one.

Finally: It Plays Great!

By Lindsey Allen

from Louisville, KY

The first guitar shipped to me from the warehouse wouldn't play. At the middle of the neck, a bunch of twanging happened. I took it to the store to get an inspection, and staff passed the guitar around to play it. Brian and Dane said the neck was bowed outward. Worst guitar they have seen! I had to return the entire box set in order to get a replacement guitar set and store service was excellent testing the new box set. I hope that the factory will inspect the guitars with a greater care and attention. If I get another bogus guitar online, I will probably purchase in the store from now on. My new guitar is great for rocking now!

What to really expect with this kit (for beginners)

By Craig Norborg

from Albuquerque, NM

I'm a total beginner playing guitar, absolutely no idea what I'm doing. I expected to be able to change that pretty quick with this kit and I'm so far pretty disappointed. I would expect a beginners kit to assume the person using it has no idea what they are doing. This kit is far from that. It's like they tossed the components together, but still assume you know something. The tuner for instance, under detailed instructions starts talking about how "The initial 'A4' is 440Hz...". Huh? Then it says "please clip the tuner onto the proper position of the instrument you wish to tune". I'm a BEGINNER, I don't know the "proper position"!! Thinking the DVD might tell me more, I dive into the first available lesson. It's about power chords and such and talks about how you must first follow the tuning techniques he showed you. Did I miss something? Yes, I did. I missed in the item description where it says you get a demo of an instructional CD, not the whole thing. You're missing a ton of lessons about tuning, string names, chords, etc. You know, stuff a BEGINNER might want to know. Only had it open a few hours and getting pretty disappointed from the standpoint of a complete beginner. The instrument seems nice, the amp seems ok. Heck, even the tuner looks impressive. The gig bag looks nice and the stand seems functional. But this kit is definitely not for a beginner, or someone that is expecting a DVD that actually teaches you from the beginning. The DVD is only a sampler, and not the important parts...

Great Value for Beginners

By David Evans

from Jacksonville, FL

I bought this kit 1 1/2 years ago at the recommendation of GC and it was an excellent choice. It was exactly what it was advertised as and what I thought it would be. A starter kit. I had wanted to start playing electric guitar for many years and decided to take lessons immediately which turned out to be a smart move. I have read other reviews saying it is a great guitar. It is what it is. A very nice beginning guitar and nothing else. I have no complaints with it, but having played my instructor's guitars occasionally I know what a good guitar sounds like and this isn't it. I never had any problems with the amp. It was cheap, but that's what I paid for. I have since replaced it with a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe III which is a great amp. I also replaced the guitar stand and tuner. I will be retiring at the end of next year and will upgrade the guitar when I will have the time to do some serious praticing. Right now if I can get in 45 minutes of practice a day I feel lucky. To all beginners reading these reviews I would absolutely recommend this kit. It is a great value, and even though I probably won't play it again after I upgrade I will always keep it since it was my first. I also have a young grandson who may want to use it in the future.

For begginers mostly.

By David Chavez

from Duarte,CA

This was my first guitar.Its the guitar I learn only basic things on like bar chords and such(not good for much, since playing songs sound pretty bad and alike). I would recommend this to any begginer over anything else, because after you get good and get better guitars to add to your collection you can always do what I did, buy a american strat neck and back plate to replace the one on you squier and also get some tex special pups to make it really special. You can make it look and sound alike to a standard american strat and still have the fact that it was your first without feeling embarrassed that you still own a squier. All for around $100+ if your a smart buyer.

OK for the price

By Dylan Yost

from Seneca Illinois

Ive been playing this guitar for 5 years since the very beggining of guitar and me. it was a great guitar for the first 3 years but then i began to see its flaws. the lower tone knob doesnt work anymore, it cant keep tune very well, and deffinatley not a sensitive guitar. BUT i will say, the amount of time ive had it it has played well and went through several shows. it has a few dents and scratches, but its a guitar to last the years. i recomend this to begginers and begginers only. it has a good price, but you will shortley outgrow it like i did and move to a fender strat that is deffinatley worth the money.

Fender Stratocaster

By Hector Munoz

from McFarland CA.

This is not cheap. With this new Sunburst I adjusted some things like the tuners, the bridge action, the string tree, put D'Addario strings, adjusted truss rod, little bit of the frets, the nut of the guitar, and bought a Fender Stratocaster pickguard colored white. Now it looks like and plays like an early 60's strat. I have five guitars but this one tops them all. The original price of this is actually $349.99 and some of the customers said that you would be happy with just buying the guitar for 350. When you get this guitar, just look up as much videos on YouTube that are about fixing up guitars or just send it to the guitar technician so that he can adjust it the best he can. This is no beginner. PS... People say that cheap Squire Guitars are stupid and stay out of tune quickly but actually pretty much a lot of "real" strats get out of tune. Look up on YouTube for the best way to put new strings on, there is a popular method that locks the strings to the tuners, and if you want to use the tremolo or so called the whammy bar, just place powdered graphite in the nut of the guitar so that the strings can slide easily. Lots of people do this to keep their guitar in tune almost permanently until new stringing time.
